Unexpected Royal Favour

You might expect the Queen, as head of the church in England, to sniff haughtily at us godless folks, but no;  in her speach to the General Synod yesterday, she was at pains to point out that atheists are not the evil bastards we're made out to be sometimes.

In our more diverse and secular society, the place of religion has come to be a matter of lively discussion. It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue and that the wellbeing and prosperity of the nation depend on the contribution of individuals and groups of all faiths and none.
Well bugger me!

Also reported in the Guardian today.
